How can I get a copy of a repair/service manual for a 2016 CR-V? Is there somewhere I can download it from? Or can I get it from the dealership?

Honda pretty much stopped making paper or pdf service manuals readily available. They do sell online access to the information via subscription and it's time limited, but it's kind of expensive.

Search online. I found a full pdf file of the manual for my 2013 for free.
If you found it for free you should definitely share the link. I'd love to have that manual for my 2013.

I learned on this forum that you can order a print version of the full (400+ pages) of the cr-v manual from the honda owners site (i think) - they sent it for free
That's the owners manual.

The workshop/service manual is a very different animal.

Looking for a FREE service manual for a 2018 Honda HR-V. Total rip off that you have to pay for it! Second question, is he Honda CR-V limited service manual close?
Thank you!

Since most service manuals are several hundred pages, no one is going to have a free service manual for your vehicle, at least not a legal copy.

The Honda CR-V 2012-2016 repair manual has 10570 pages. I can not imagine the thickness after printing on the printer. :) I think that for the information how to repair the vehicle, the owner who bought the vehicle and owned it should not pay. It is only my opinion even when the law writes others

But most owners do not do their own maintenance, which is why it's not included in the vehicle purchase.

A .pdf copy of the 2007 - 2012 is 2334 pages that is including 17 pages for 2013 Fog Light Installation.
Obviously the Honda CR-V 2012-2016 repair manual of 10570 pages is very technical indeed and would consist of a separate book for each section of the vehicle, i.e. Electrical - Engine - Transmission etc.

My wife's new car (not a Honda) has a 17,000+ page Service Manual. :jawdrop:

The purchase is similar to Honda's plan. IE, you buy access to the source site for a period of time. A one-day subscription is enough to obtain whatever procedures you are working on, plus a few more for 'down the road'.

The cost doesn't seem that exorbitant to me, seeing as how the '06 HELM paper manual was over $120 USD. That was a bargain, as another car I purchased a service manual for, in the late '80s, cost me $300!

Today's scheme will cover a few temporary subscriptions. Also, don't forget, you can search YouTube for FREE videos of many common procedures for all cars.

This may be a dead topic, but doesn't anyone use the local public library anymore? I've always been able to find the Helms/Motors manuals there with tech data and schematics. That being said, when I bought my last Accord (2001), I had them throw in a full set of manuals. Niiiice!

My local library used to have a subscription (IIRC Chilton's Professional?), but the cost became prohibitive and they dropped it.

I still found plenty on ebay. 10k+ pages for a reasonable price.
